In a thrilling race, Laura Mickelson took the lead after 800m and led virtually the entire race until she was passed with a lap to go. However, Laura Mickelson hung tough, finishing second in the heat in a new school-record time of 16:57.69, shaving 18 seconds off the previous mark. Fellow sophomores Sara Mickelson and Brittany Rezowalli had excellent races as well, with Sara Mickelson running 17:21.91 and Rezowalli running 18:07.67, knocking 13 seconds off her previous best.
